Chemistry Animations




Chemistry Based Animations

These animations support the teaching of concepts in chemistry in freshman through graduate level courses. Some of the QuickTime movie are without audio, and some of the audio--from a few of the sound augmented QuickTime movie--has been stripped and made available in Real Audio's streaming audio format. The chemistry courses that profit from these sorts of multimedia content include instrumental analysis, environmental chemistry, atmospheric chemistry and air quality. The gold foil experiment movie augments a completely on-line freshman chemistry course.

Atom Builder

Build a carbon atom out of quarks and electrons, but watch out for radioactive decay.

Chemical Bonds

Because of the tendency of atoms to complete their outer energy shells with the stable number of electrons for each shell, atoms with incomplete shells have a tendency to gain electrons, lose electrons or share electrons. Atoms that have gained or lost electrons become ions. Oppositely charged ions form ionic bonds. Atoms that share electrons form covalent bonds. A much weaker, but very important bond in biological systems is the hydrogen bond.

Chirality - Chemistry 2001

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2001 concerns work with chiral molecules. These chiral molecules can be used to control or speed up different chemical reactions. In this game you can learn the basic principles of chirality.
